SDCC '14: Banner For Neill Blomkamp’s New Film CHAPPIE

Neill Blomkamp, the director of District 9 and Elysium, has a brand new science-fiction film coming out next year, Chappie. Thanks to Collider we have the first look at a banner, which was erected at SDCC convention center lobby.

In 2009, everyone took notice of Neill Blomkamp's talents when District 9 became the sleeper hit of the summer. Its $210M revenue easily surpassed the film's meager $30M budget. Interest in his next project reached a feverish pitch. That project was the 2013 film Elysium, which starred Matt Damon ("EuroTrip"). It pulled in $286M at the worldwide box office against a budget of $115 million (minus marketing costs).

In 2015, we'll get to see his next offering. It will be Chappie, here's the official tagline: "After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot." It stars: Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley.
